region. >>> back here at home, issue number one is reaching a deal on that fiscal cliff. just 31 days left until we hit those $7 trillion in automatic spending cuts and tax increases if negotiations break down. and both sides of the aisle are going straight to the public in order to plead their case, or rather tell us why the other side is to blame. this is president obama in his weekly radio address. >> both parties say we should keep middle class taxes low. the senate has already passed a bill to keep income taxes from going up on middle class families. democrats in the house are ready to do the same thing. and if we can just get a few house republicans onboard, i'll sign this bill as soon as congress sends it my way. but it's unacceptable for some republicans in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage simply because they refuse to let tax rates go up on the wealthiest americans. >> in the republican response, senator orrin hatch takes th s hostage metaphor one step further and brings to mind a memorable movie scene. >> unfortunately, some on the other side of the aisle are o

is the fiscal cliff. we're now just one month away from the deadline with no clear solution in sight. candy crowley joining me for more on this. we've been talking about this for some time. what is the president -- what's the president doing, and what can he do really to avert this cliff, if anything? >> well, let's take, first, everybody here is responsible. the democrats in congress and the republicans in congress and the white house. i can tell you that some folks are saying the president needs to get personally involved. we know that they had -- they meaning the leadership on capitol hill, republicans and democrats, and the president, had one meeting, and that there are, you know, meetings at the staff level going ownering but a lot of people think this is going to take a lot more muscle from the president in the room because m end this is a deal that will have to really be agreed to by the republican speaker of the house john boehner and the democratic president in the white house, barack obama. in the end that's where the deal is going to come. we're going to have to get
